Life Quotes

At some stages of your life you will deal with things and at others you are overwhelmed with misery and anxiety.

Nigella Lawson

Tragedy occurs when a human soul awakes and seeks, in suffering and pain, to free itself from crime, violence, infamy, even at the cost of life. The struggle is the tragedy - not defeat or death. That is why the spectacle of tragedy has always filled men, not with despair, but with a sense of hope and exaltation.

Whittaker Chambers

Insanity is not a distinct and separate empire; our ordinary life borders upon it, and we cross the frontier in some part of our nature.

Henri Taine

It's a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people don't want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

When we remember that we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.

Mark Twain

The more disciplined you become, the easier life gets.

Steve Pavlina

However boldly their warm blood was spilt, Their life was shame, their epitaph was guilt; And this they knew and felt, at least the one, The leader of the hand he had undone,-- Who, born for better things, had madly set His life upon a cast, which linger'd yet.

Lord Byron

Hard work is painful when life is devoid of purpose. But when you live for something greater than yourself and the gratification of your own ego, then hard work becomes a labor of love.

Steve Pavlina

What was any art but an effort to make a sheath, a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining, elusive element which is life itself life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose?

Willa Sibert Cather

Human affairs are like a chess-game: only those who do not take it seriously can be called good players. Life is like an earthen pot: only when it is shattered, does it manifest its emptiness.


This young man-whether he's my son or a stranger-repeatedly declares, "I didn't do it, I didn't do it." And he's shot down. That's not the American way of life. A man is innocent until he's proved guilty

Marguerite Oswald

The night has a thousand eyes,And the day but one;Yet the light of the bright world dies With the dying sun. The mind has a thousand eyes,And the heart but one:Yet the light of a whole life dies When love is done.

Francis William Bourdillon

The only perfection which modern civilisation achieves is mechanical; machines are magnificent and immaculate but the life which serves them or is served by them isn't magnificent or shiny or more perfect or more comely.

Karel Čapek

The happiest time of anyone's life is just after the first divorce.


The preceding criticism ... justifies the following definition of the entire human: human existence as the life of unmotivated celebration, celebration in all meaning of the word: laughter, dancing, orgy, the rejection of subordination, and sacrifice that scornfully puts aside any consideration of ends, property, and morality.

Georges Bataille
